IT must go on record that the wire
of the justices of the U sited States
Supreme Court have the power, ia
certain cases, to revise decisions
reached by the most august legal tri
buna Id the world. These gentlemen

grave question, "What is a sauce?" is
presented for tinal adjudication the
Justices must bow to the will of petti
coat government. The Supreme Court
not lonj; ago learned that it was not in
all cases the highest tribunal iu the
land, and the more intimate friends
of the justices have not been slow to
poke an occasional Joke at these grave
and reverend gentlemen. A New York
firm had Imported some "fish paste,"
and the collector of the port assessed
the goods as "sauce." The importers
claimed that this was a wrong classi
fication and brought suit in the Circuit
Court for excess of duty paid, holding
that the goods were "fish paste," on
which a lower rate was charged. The
Circuit Court, after carefully consider
ing all 'circumstances and consulting
Webster's dictionary, confirmed the col
lector's view and an appeal was taken
to the Supreme Court of the United

States. That body, after hearing elab
orate arguments on the question, upheld
the decision of the lower court, and oue
of the justices was awarded the impor
tant duty of writing the opinion.
Had this justice followed his usual
course of not discussing at home what
took place in court he and his associates
would not now be in the position of hav
ing been overruled by their matrimonial
consorts. At dinner that evening he
was reminded by some condiment on
the table of the case which had been
decided that day, and mentioned the
circumstances to his wife. The latter
t once proceeded to read her distin
guished spouse such a lecture upon the
cuisine and the constituents entering
into it that he began to waver. In a
calm and penetrating manner she held
op the delicious effects fish paste would
have on a tender bead of lettuce, and
described its palate pulsating delight
when freely embellishing chicken salad.
"Sauce, indeed," said she; "so are
sardine and smoked red herring, then."
Next day when the justice reached the
Supreme Court he called his colleagues
together and acquainted them with the
feminine riew of the uaace question.
"Ton are all married men, like my
self." he amid, "and maybe you'd better
sound your wive before we make a
precedent about anchovy and bloater
paste being sauce."
This was agreed to, and next day
eight Justices of the Supreme Court
met and solemnly concurred that the
customs department of the United
states and the Circuit Court of the
southern district of New York and Web
ster's Unabridged Dictionary didn't
know anything more about what sauce
was than a tomtit did about the peuta

been assigned to the duty wrote an

As to this particular municipality,
it may Ie possible that one reason w hy
our common schools neve failed In
doing the work for which they were es
tablished Is because of the prevailing
Impression that anybody can teach and
that teaching must be cheap. The
wriier Is thoroughly aware that this
Is not the theory; but that it is the
practice the following comparisons of
salaries goes far to prove:

They Are All Children Toirether.
A well-worn adage declares that
"as tbe twig is bent the the tree In
clines," but our Board of Education
knows better. It says In effect, "It
does not In the least matter bow these
very young tw'gs are bandied nor bow

now; later they can be straightened.
So tbe young teacher, tbe inexperi
enced cadet I put into tbe primary

sir, your daughter, dear madam, are
laying the foundation for the whole
superstructure of their future educa
tion. This Is the most Important work,
which la confided to the moat youthful
and least experienced of all the teach

Another reason for the falture of re
sults iu our common schools may be
found Iu the fjt that the Importance,
or. to sjs-ak more correctly, the neces
sity, of au elementary education fm
eiery citizen f this country is largely
Io; siglit of In the growiii anxiety on
the part of parents, teacher and pu
pils for thit more pretentious curricu
lum which reads well iu au annual re
port, look Well iu a UeW.p:lper report,
and sounds well iu conversation,
farental Ambition Hoes It All.
Au American, parent who U not will
ing to make any sacrifice Ju order that
his children may receive all possible
educational advantages would be con
sidered unworthy both of his nation
ality and his parental privileges. Un
fortunately the Hpuiar interpretation
of the phrase "educational advantages"
does not mean (hat a child i-hall le
trained to du the thing for which na
ture has best lilted him or her. Pa
rental umbitiou takes precedence of
naiural adaptation, and in this natal
home of equality no one willingly re
mains In the ranks of those who "earn
their bread by the sweat of their
brow." Every pint cup tries to hold
a quart, and there Is no quart vessel
but feel sure It can contain a gallon.
There must therefore be added to the
course of study ologies and languages,
music and drawing, until one wonders
that the young minds are not exhausted
and the young bodies worn out long be
fore the schooldays are ended.
It Is the growth of the desire on the
part of the "American public for the
more ornamental branches of educa
tion which has In the last ten years
almost doubled the average cost per
annum for e.ich pupil In the public
school. It Is owing to this same spirit
that- so many thousands of the city's
children arc either nearly deprived of
all school privileges or have at most
only the advantage of half-day ses
slons. Their birthright has been taken
that others may sup a richer porridge.
Special Studies Coat More Money.
Special studies come high and
the salaries of those who teach them
are not adjusted with the same careful
economy that arranges the salaries of
the teachers of the ordinary branches.
By way of Illustration here Is another
little table of comparison:
Teacher of singing ?2..VNi

ing, from Jfl,lm to. J.,0U

from Js.Hi to
Assistants, from $l."ll t
Mule assistant teachers in primary
mid grammar grades, from $700
Assistant teachers, primary grades,
common bram-hes. from ?l.7l to. 77."
The writer does not desire to be un
derstood as objecting to the scale of
salaries paid (o special teachers. Doubt
less they earn ull they receive, but It
is earnestly contended that In view of
the relative Importance of the brandies
taught there should be either a acaling
up or a seating down.
There Is still another phase of our ed
ucational system which ill Its latter
day development seems to have mili
tated strongly against the greatest use
fulness of our schools. The extreme
leniency of the regulations of the board
of education Iu dealing with insubordi
nation has had a potent influence in
crippling the earnest efforts of con
scientious teachers in behalf of their

pronching this subject Is like treading
on holy ground, and that it is the gen
eral custom to doff the shoes of com
mon sense before entering upon It. The
proof of this assertion Is found Iu the
attitude taken by the public at large
whenever the question of discipline In
the common schools comes up. lt

It Is probable that no thoughtful per
son doubts the ue-essity of a strict dis
cipline backed by the authoritative
right to punish any breaches of It, for
the proper up-building and maintain
ing of an efficient army or navy. Yet
the board of education, supported by
public opinion, has turned loose an
army of children of all ages, recruited
from all ranks of society, upon the
long-suffering public school teacher,
and demands that without the shadow
of a right to punish, w Itluscarcely the
